The second anual "Cracktoberfest" was on in full efect. Every single crust punk, from every corner of NYC (and beyond) showed up for this (not to be missed) event.
I missed a whole shit-load of bands, for which I don't really care for. I arrived in the midst of the A$$troland's set. A$$, in my oppinion, is a horrible band. Their singer sounds like an ass when he screams, and their songs are about stupid subjects (which I don't want to get into).
Shortly after, Crackrocksteady 7 (or should I say Leftover Crack) came on. LOC always brings their best set to Cracktoberfest, and they did just that tonight. I have not seen such a crazy LOC show in a long time. People were going crazy and so was the band. The band's sound, particularly Stza's vocals were kind of out of it. I guess it was the microphones that made the vocals song so bad, but it was a punk show, so the quality didn't really matter for the evening.
LOC played a surprisingly large amound of Chocking Victim songs, which made me very happy. They played: "500 Channels," "War Story," "Infested," "Suicide," and finished off with the ever-so-popular "Crack Rocksteady."
After LOC all the crusties left, so there were like litterary 50 people watching 2MA. That, however, didn't ruin their set. I actually thought 2MA sounded much better than LOC, and that's why I love them so. What made the set even funnier is the fact that Spag wore a sXe Gorilla Biscuits and holding a bottle of Captain Morgan in his hand-classic!
2MA played their usual songs like: "Zamboni Driving Maniac," "I Had A Dream About Hockey," "Opinionated Motherfucker," and much, much more.
This year was fun, despite having to deal with a bunch of crusties passing out from beer, and people smoking around me. I will come back next year only if 2MA plays again. If they don't, then it's just not worth making the trip to the shit (and who knows what) infested C-Squat.
